Kimmo Kurko claimed the blinds and big blind ante with a raise from early position to 160,000 and Sandro Hauser then did the same with the , as Kurko had to forfeit some of his profit.
Gerard Carbo then raised to 600,000 on the button with 635,000 behind and Kurko pushed in the small blind for Carbo to call as he had half of the stack invested already.
The flop was a disaster for Carbo as he needed a miracle to survive. It was all over after the turn and that made the river a formality. Carbo's run ended with a payday of €16,500 and Kurko pulled further ahead at the top of the leaderboard with five players remaining.
